A selection of photos from The Common in the (Eternal) City!
On May 21 The Common’s staff and supporters came together at NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute for our annual benefit gala–a silent auction, , cocktails and aperitivos, and selections of film and music inspired by a night in Italy. Alexander Chee curated the playlist; Brooklyn Brewery, Van Brunt Stillhouse, Pagani, and Spirited provided refreshments; and The New Yorker’s Larissa Macfarquhar moderated a conversation with filmmaker and author Antonio Monda on place, art, travel, and identity. We auctioned off dozens of author postcards, luxury goods, and literary opportunities.
Thank you so much to everyone who came out in support of The Common! We so enjoyed spending the evening with you, gathered in a common place to share stories–and create new ones–in the spirit of our publication.
